Yuletide 2012

Guess what?  I have some jewelry items at a craft show in the 1305 Gallery.  A few artists put their items for sale at the Gallery's Annual Holiday Show and Kevin's cousin asked me to add some items for the Cindy Craft Cartel table.  So I was in - with about a week's notice, it was a pretty hectic deadline to get some jewelry items, but sometimes a deadline is good for creating those pieces I've had mulling about in my head for awhile and keep thinking, I'll get to but hardly take the time to.  Well, now is the time!  I worked and worked and probably neglected the kids a little while working on this.  I also recently got some supplies for some more pieces, which I will be posting about soon and getting to the show asap! 

The show runs from now (well, actually started on Black Friday) through January 5th.  Hours are:  Monday-Saturday:  11-7, & Sundays 12-5.

Here are some of my pieces that are currently at 1305 Gallery!:

Ears To You Blog Hop

Thank you CopperDiem for starting this hop and for letting me be a part of it.  Check here for the other's in the blog hop.

My first blog hop....
I've certainly lurked on others and saw how cool it is to be a part of one - the networking, the feedback, seeing everyone's creativity when all are given the same directions. 
So here's the deal with this one.  These earrings were created to be donated to the Ears to You organization whose mission "is to provide earrings to lift the spirits of women undergoing chemotherapy for any type of cancer."  Pretty awesome idea, huh?  The organization is located in Hinkley, OH - which is just around the corner from where I grew up - thought that was kind of cool too.
And here are the earrings. 

The lampworked discs and stars in the first and last ones are from Jodie Marshall.  The pink pixies in the last earring set are from My Elements.  The purple flower Czech glass daisy beads in the second earrings are from Yashma Creations paired with some purple drops from Hobby Lobby.  The third pink and tiger's eye earrings are a pattern from a Beadwork magazine.
That's it - they have been shipped!

Thank you for looking.  Here are the other participants.  Take the time to look at all of theirs too!
